about us

At ScanCARE we create healthcare solutions that help nursing and theatre managers and their teams to safely navigate what can seem like a minefield of regulations and standards. 

Opening our doors in 1987 our focus during those early years was on crafting and maintaining surgical instruments for operating theatres. Working with this special purpose equipment gave us a direct "warts and all" insight into the surgical instrument management process and we realised it could be done better.

We became enthralled with the idea of revolutionising the way clinics and hospitals managed surgical instrument processes.  The result was a surgical tracking and perioperative activity management system, ScanCARE Activity.
